Talk:Awakening values

Rename

According to the guidebook (which I don't currently have but Abcboy does), these values are known as "Go Power". While we ignore the official names of EVs and IVs due to the unofficial names becoming ingrained in the fandom before the official ones were widely used, there's no reason to use the unofficial name for a new kind of stat. --SnorlaxMonster 03:39, 1 December 2018 (UTC)

The "Awakening" name is taken from a dump of text strings in the game's symbol table, so in a sense this is the official name that they use internally, as contrasted with the name they use in outward communication to describe the concept. SadisticMystic (talk) 14:25, 1 December 2018 (UTC)
Purely internal names aren't official names. Internal naming only needs to be meaningful to the Japanese developers, not anyone else. And while "awakening" is used with respect to them internally, it's not like the name "awakening values" is actually used. --SnorlaxMonster 14:40, 1 December 2018 (UTC)
Just to emphasize that this is explicitly the official name, it was also used in the announcement of the upcoming Mewtwo distribution to highlight that its stats are maxed. --SnorlaxMonster 02:17, 3 August 2019 (UTC)
That seems as solid as evidence get. I originally created this as "Awakening values" because a fan name is better than no name for something this noteworthy. TehPerson (talk) 02:30, 3 August 2019 (UTC)
